Ohh, I was lyin' in the bed with fever
And I was burnin' up inside
My baby walked in my bedroom
And I could hardly open my eyes

She said that she was goin' to the pawnshop
Just across the track
She started packin' some clothes in a hurry
And then she said she would be right back

But I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since that day, yeah
Well I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since she went away
I remember so well when she slammed the door
But the girl didn't make it back no more
I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since that day

Well, I waited for twenty four hours and I was just about to starve to death
It didn't look like she was comin' back, so I had to look out for myself
Well, I called the police department to find out what they knew
They said, "No, by heck, but we will get her yet"
Because they was lookin' for her too

But I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since that day, yeah
Well I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since she went away
Well, I don't know what happened across the track
But I know my baby didn't make it back
I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since that day

Well, I called my Dr. Foster and when the girl answered the phone
I got a funny feeling, the way she said 'Dr. Foster had gone'
She said, "He left with a lady patient, about twenty four hours ago"
I added two and two and here's what I got
I got I'll never see that girl no more

Well, I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since that day, yeah
But I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since she went away
If Dr. Foster has got her, then I know I'm through
Because he's got medicine and money too
I ain't seen hide 'nor hair of my baby since that day, woh, no
